  1. Feb. 19-24 Heavy rain and flooding threat

    As of 10PM last night CMI had recorded 4.11” rain since Sunday night.
  2. Feb. 19-24 Heavy rain and flooding threat

    On my way to work and took my normal rural road, had to turn around the road was completely impassable. Man flooded roadways sneak up on you in a hurry in the dark. 32 degrees and moderate to borderline heavy rain at times.
  3. Feb. 19-24 Heavy rain and flooding threat

    Just took a cruise throughout the rural areas, lots of flooding in fields and roadways as well.
  4. Feb. 19-24 Heavy rain and flooding threat

    Area flood watch to now a WWA for freezing rain. Gotta love the Midwest folks. This might be the first time I’ve ever seen such a combo. Front is crashing through now, very heavy rainfall currently, over 3” now.
  5. Feb. 19-24 Heavy rain and flooding threat

    2.09” in the last 36 hours, with another wave coming this afternoon/evening. Thunder sleet being reported in Kansas right now.
  6. Feb. 19-24 Heavy rain and flooding threat

    1.34” here since last night. Not sure why no flood warnings hoisted here, next wave of precipitation should arrive over night. Euro is more aggressive than GFS regarding the temperature change tomorrroe night, and wants to bring moderate freezing rain to the area. Definitely something to monitor. Multiple records in jeapordy. Some upper 70s to low 80s in the south. Sheesh.
  7. Winter 2017-18 Medium/Long Range Disco

    Agreed. We are arguing over nothing. A majority of us are excited when the first flakes fly, when the first spring day springs upon us with bird chirping alarm clock, when the first 90 degree day hits, and swimming is in full force, and finally when leaf changing occurs, and we get wound up fall systems, to usher in that first chill of Canadian air I find beauty in all 4 seasons.
  8. It’s amazing the stark contrast of snowfall up north compared to here, yes climo obviously plays a huge role, even then winter down here has been awful. Just a hair over 11” on the season in CMI with points S/SW/SE still sitting in the single digits on the year. I have 65 in my forecast Monday. May make a run at the record (68) set just last year.
  9. February 2018 Discussion

    Ended up topping out at 61 with a dp of 59, truly felt springlike and definitely has me itching for consistent springlike conditions. Rest of February looks fairly mild. EDIT: actually had a rumble of thunder this morning as well, and some much needed rainfall. Rainfall has been scarce the past few months. Next week should prove to be beneficial to many needing a good drink.
  10. Torching away at 48 degrees, good riddance snow, landscape reset to bare ground (damn near) at this point I want no more snow to stat pad what has been a boring winter. Sorry guys, im bitter and starved for a good 6-10” storm. Don’t mean to constantly complain. But I have good reason.
  11. Let’s play spot the screw hole.
  12. Let's Talk Winter!!

    As person my post from the banter thread I haven’t seen a snowfall 7” or greater since 3/1/15. I haven’t seen a snowfall of 5” or greater since 3/1/15. These last 3 winters have been pure garbage for anyone south of I-80. Chicago and Detroit peeps have cashed in repeatedly. Bring on spring. Over this pattern.
  13. I am so ready to put this winter out of its misery, but this thing is going to linger well into March, me thinks. Some more incredible stats for CMI. last 7” snowfall was 3/1/15 last 5” or greater was 3/1/15 last WSW was 2/24/16 and a major bust A brief warmup of 42 degrees tomorrow, just enough to melt our measly 2” snow depth and reset the landscape to bare ground again. I hope Chicago peeps enjoy the 10-14” of snow.
  14. Early February Hyperactivity

    Sigh. Gonna get screwed again. Congrats on those up north though! Focus has shifted to the weekend overrunning event now.
  15. The winter of true nickle and diming continues. My seasonal snowfall total stands at 9.6” for now. After this wave moving through Tuesday/Wednesday I’m done with this winter, anything now is just stat padding a junk winter. Winter grade stands at D+, saving grace was a 3” snowfall Christmas Eve, which was beautiful.
